    thats a rough guide

    dual core cpu
    2gb ram
    250gb hard disk
    19'' monitor

    then spend say another £40 and get a 7300gt or so

    and u have a very decent machine to play games and whatever

    for roughly £400 give or take

    there are better deals as i havent looked that much and dell change thier deals every thursdays, plus keep checking hotdeals as MIKE T usually posts cracking dell deals

    hope that helps

    What's your budget sassie?..there aws an excellent Dell deal but not sure if its still on ..I will find you the link.

    hotukdeals.com/for…ell

    as I said I'm not sure it's still a deal but if it is I'd highly recommend it.

    Hi and thank you both, dont really have a budget as such, if its a fab deal then i can afford it, not really sure on the dell deals, never heard many good things about them :oops: i just know the comp we have is carp with a diddy hard drive and diddy memory and dont really think it worth spending money to upgrade it a little, so juggling with the idea of just going the whole hog and replace the lot, obviously as its for the children i dont want to spend the earth but i also dont want one that cheap that it wont run anything

    the above machine i listed will run everything comfortably

    Not sure what bad stories you've heard about Dell but the one in our house is great...your other option is to purchase a seperate base unit and monitor from somewhere like ebuyer...please inform if you are totally against Dell and I'll suggest someit else.

    I hear dell was in money problems and being probed for fraud, computer shopper latest issue. Can't find the computer shopper link so next best thing keep looking. It was a story similar to this pcpro.co.uk/sho…ers
